Swedish Social Democrat PM express will not step down after vote
Sweden's Social Democrat Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said early on Monday he would remain in office in the coming weeks and call for cooperation across the political divide after an election which showed the country heading for a hung parliament.
Lofven has led a minority government of Social Democrats and Greens, with Left Party support in parliament, for the past four years. The bloc held a wafer-thin lead over the centre-right Alliance with less than 50 of 6,004 districts still to be counted.
